to their $20 billion beer merger. warren buffett announced it's buying food giant heinz. and if u.s. regulators allow it, usair will take over bankrupt american airlines creating the world's biggest airline in the process. that deal is good for investors, but passengers worry airfares will shoot up as competition disapears. but take a look at this. just after airline deregulation came into effect, there were 20 major airlines in the united states. by 1990, there were only 12 major airlines in operation. today just seven and with "uss -- usair and american merging we'll be down six. usair and american don't have a lot of overlapping routes or hubs. in the end, there will only be about out routes out of the 9,000 or so that will be served by one airline. they may see fares go up. but look at this. since 1979, prices for an average domestic economy airfare have dropped from $579 then to $365 now, though they have started to tick up a little bit lately. so much for that myth that merging airlines causes prices to go up. thanks for watching this week. find me on facebook at facebook.com/ali velshi.

shots at a van carrying seven people. they were also charged with using firearms while under the influence of alcohol. the charges had been dropped but were reinstated days before the pistorius case broke out. inside the hot, stuffy courtroom the judge called him to grill him about his handling of the case against the olympic athlete asking him "did you request records from reeva steenkamp's cell phone, did she receive text messages between 2:00 and 3:00 a.m.?" both his response, "i don't know." when final arguments got under way in the bail hearing the defense insisted the evidence shows oscar pistorius did not commit murder saying, if pistorius really wanted to kill his girlfriend, he would have done it in the bedroom, that her empty bladder is consistent with someone simply getting up and going to the restroom in the middle of the night. they say that steenkamp probably locked the door frantically as she heard pistorius shouting at a burglar and insists pistorius carried her downstairs to take her to the hospital desperate to save her life. the defense argues that oscar pi
